As we reported in 2014, Lusby, Maryland, a coastal community known as Cove Point, has found itself in the wrong place at the wrong time. The seaside community snuggles up to an idle liquid natural gas facility that Dominion Energy is converting to the East Coast’s only natural gas liquifying and export facility.
But Cove Point is fighting back hard. Now they’re seeking Governor Hogan’s help to stop and study the project that butts up to 2,365 homes, three churches, two schools and 19 daycare centers.
Plus, another critical question looms: Why are we building a huge fossil fuel export facility when we’re trying to reduce global warming Greenhouse Gases?
